On the 21st of June, the Yulin Dog Meat Eating Festival will take place in the Guangxi province of China. 15 000 dogs are slaughtered at this festival every year. Many of the dogs are reportedly abducted from their owner’s homes and arrive in trucks at the festival with their collars still on.

The dogs are skinned and boiled alive. Some are hung upside down and beaten then left to bleed out slowly. They are killed in front of other dogs, all in an attempt to increase the adrenaline in their muscles which the misguided believe will increase their virility when eaten.

This is just one example of the horrors inflicted on animals in China every day. Dogs are treated like this and eaten year round. Bears are kept for their whole lives in cages too small to turn around in, and their bile milked from infected openings cut into their stomach. Turtles are sealed into little bags and sold as living key chains. Domestic pets and livestock are kept in appalling conditions at markets. Live chickens, turtles, quails and other birds and animals are shoved into net bags and left in the sun on the sidewalk without food and water until they are sold. Cats are boiled alive and eaten. The Chinese government must stop the Yulin dog eating festival. They must pass laws that will ensure that animals – whatever the species – are bred, held and killed in a humane and sustainable way. They must make animal abuse a criminal offense.

Young Chinese activists are starting to take a stand and demanding change from their own government (Chinese driven petitions: http://chn.ge/134YzSe and http://1.usa.gov/18tt5Hp). They are fighting for animal rights at great personal and financial expense. Avaaz is just one of the internet sites blocked in China and makes their plight so much harder to get out to the world. Please stand with them and work for change in China’s animal welfare laws.

Update 23/6/2013: Despite widespread outrage from both within China, as well as the rest of the world, the Yulin festival went ahead as planned this year. The good news is that the Chinese government has started taking note of activist’s concerns and dispatched officials to Yulin in an attempt to control the torture of these dogs prior to being slaughtered. Keep the pressure up. Sign petitions. Make your voice heard and don’t stop until China passes animal welfare laws!

Update 14/2/2014: 2800 cats – many of them pets with collars on – are rescued when activists stop a truck transporting the animals in Wuhan, China.

Update 9/3/2014: Police brutally kill pet dog in Langzhong City, Sichuan, China. https://secure.avaaz.org/en/petition/National_Peoples_Congress_Legislate_Small_Animals_Protection_Law/?fbss

Update 6/5/2014: China has passed laws to protect 420 endangered species by outlawing the consumption of these animal products. This is a huge step in the right direction! It remains to be seen whether the law is enforced, but change is slowly coming.

Nera must pay her vet bills or be put back on the streets!

Nera is recovering well from all her surgery. But there are huge vet bills waiting to be paid! Although not fully recovered, she risks going back on the street if her vet bills are not paid in full.

She was hit by a car, she suffered an open fracture and went to surgery; she also had torn ligaments, but the trouble didn’t end there. She still had a fever and started to pee blood; she had a tickborne disease, and her breath was short. The ultrasound revealed she had a torn diaphragm, so she had to undergo surgery again, and it got worse:- part of her liver had to be removed too. 

Now the rod from her leg (see photo of X ray) has been removed, we still owe  money for the second operation and €70 for the third operation with the X-ray scan.
Daycare costs €70 euros plus food for every month.

Even the smallest donation will mean a lot to us and will be appreciated.

We now have an update from Julie; which reads as follows:

Kew Cuts Petition Update (25th May 2014):   Help us reach 100k signatures!

Julie Flanagan

London

Thank you everyone for the amazing support. The petition has caused quite a stir – your support is definitely helping to make a difference, but we need to keep the pressure up and hit over 100k signatures!

We now have a Twitter account @KewCuts and Facebook page ‘Stop Kew Cuts’ – please follow/like/share to keep informed about updates to the campaign.

We have had a lot of direct interest from MPs, and fantastic cross-party support at the recent Parliamentary drop-in session. The first EDM received excellent backing and in the new Parliamentary session we are planning to lodge further EDMs for MPs to sign.

MPs have been writing letters to Defra and other Ministers in support of Kew, and they told us that letters from their constituents really make them sit up and notice issues like this – please do let them know of your concerns.

Please, please continue to encourage all family, friends and colleagues to sign the petition and prove how much Kew’s unique work is valued by the public.

 

SAV comment – ‘EDM’ means Early Day Motion –

Source – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Early_day_motion

An early day motion (EDM), in the Westminster system, is a motion, expressed as a single sentence,[1] tabled by Members of Parliament that formally calls for debate “on an early day”. In practice, they are rarely debated in the House and their main purpose is to draw attention to particular subjects of interest. EDMs may not[clarification needed] be signed by government ministersParliamentary Private Secretaries or the Speaker of the House of Commons. EDMs remain open for signature for the duration of the parliamentary session.

EDMs can be tabled on matters ranging from trivial or humorous topics to those of great importance. The censure motion by which the Labour Government of James Callaghan was ejected had its origin in an early day motion (no. 351 of 1978–79), put down on 22 March 1979, by Margaret Thatcher.

MPs may ensure the text of an EDM is printed in Hansard by mentioning it by number in questions to the Leader of the House of Commons after the Business Statement (normally on a Thursday when the house is in session).

Examples of trivial issues covered include pigeon-bombs: an EDM was tabled in the 2003–04 session of the UK Parliament by Tony Banks, which concerns itself with a disclosure by MI5 that it had proposed using pigeons as flying bombs during World War II. The motion condemned the proposal, describing humans as “obscene, perverted, cruel, uncivilised and lethal”, and proposed that the House “looks forward to the day when the inevitable asteroid slams into the Earth and wipes them out thus giving nature the opportunity to start again”. It was signed by only two other MPs (Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell).[2]

EDMs tabled on serious topics have included one demanding the release of Nelson Mandela when he was incarcerated in apartheid South Africa, and one calling for a consultation on the fingerprinting of children in schools without parental permission.[3] Shortly after the 2005 general election, 412 of the 646 MPs signed EDM 178 calling for a Climate Change Bill;[4] only three other early day motions had ever been signed by more than 400 MPs.

Lesi is a blind dog who lived for a long time at the market in a village Vinca, near Belgrade.
We don’t know how he lived in the street, but we were told that he is disorientated, has a problem with walking because he runs into objects, he isn’t able to avoid the cars when he gets out on the way and that his entire situation is very critical.

One more time we were not able to turn our head of him, and we gone to Belgrade to pick up and bring him to Novi Sad.

He is a wonderful big dog of 42 kg in a breed type of German Shepherd and something else. He is 5 years old and a huge cuddly dog, but scared, uncertain and quite a bit distrustful. But due the fact that he is completely blind, and who knows what he is experienced by human hands he is a super calm boy.

We were taking him to the several veterinarian for medical overview and opinions.
The ophthalmologist told us very bad news. Lesi lost his left eye. He suggested to do the surgery of right eye, but he can not guarantee that it will restore eyesight. The problem appeared due to untreated infection.
As the first aid he got the Tobrex drops, but we didn’t buy its because we don’t have enough money.
At our vet Ana in Novi Sad is done blood tests because we wanted to do a complete blood count and determine the sugar level in the blood. He, also, was full of fleas and ticks, and now his skin is full of fungus. Ana cleaned his ears, he got Mikoseb pills and vaccines against infectious diseases.
When we get the blood tests we will see what we should do.

Lesi has a chip, but the owner reported competent authorities that the Lesi has, allegedly, escaped in 2012 and from that day he no longer has a responsibility to Lesi. Did he really lost or just abandoned from his owner and left somewhere, we will never find out. We contacted the owner, but he no longer wants Lesi, and this is the saddest part of the Lesi story.

Initial costs:
Ophthalmic examination at the Vet. ambulance Oasis in Belgrade – 22 euros
Clinical examination at the House vet in Belgrade – for free
Blood tests, Mikoseb pills, vaccines against infectious diseases, ear cleaning at the Vet. ambulance Dog house in Novi Sad – 44 euros
Dog kennels for one month – 40 euros
Food for one month – 25 euros
Advantix ampules against ticks, fleas and mosquitoes – 14 euros
Tobrex drops – 15 euros
Upcoming costs:
Neuter – 22 euros
Dog kennels for the coming months
Food for the coming months
Possible eye surgery – about 500 euros

Special thanks go to the beautiful lady, Dessa Ilic, without whom all those things we wouldn’t do. You are our angel, dear Dessa.
